Hoard portraits

Jim Golden is a photographer with many years' advertising experience. This series of still life pictures is a collaboration with stylist Kristin Lane, and came from a chance idea while photographing a clipper collection for a friend who wanted a stylish set of pics. Photographing them individually was proving dull. “Then it dawned upon me to lay them out on the floor and photograph them from above.”, says Jim.

“This is a takedown from a tried and true merchandising technique,” continues Golden. “It’s a very accessible for the viewer and allows for the combination of all types of different objects in one image.”
